Week of DECEMBER 12, 2016
2016 may have been a great year for the world of professional wrestling, but it was an AMAZING year for the women of professional wrestling. In fact, I can’t imagine just how much better things can get for the lady performers of the squared circle. Can you pick just one woman as being The Best of 2016?
Well, let’s start off with the women who made the leap from NXT to the main roster this year. You have to be impressed with the progression of Smackdown Live women’s champion Alexa Bliss. From “pixie afterthought” to “Harley Quinn-esque” champion has made for quite the progression for Bliss over the past year. And the fact that she won the title so soon is a testament to her hard work.
But you also have to be impressed with the performances of Nia Jax, Carmella, and everybody’s favourite hugger, Bayley. Have any of their performances been good enough to consider them as “Best of 2016” candidates? No…but I still think it’s important that they be recognized.
